Open Back Midi Dress




Condition: Upcycled


Model is size 6-8

"I made this Open Back Midi Dress by combining a blue polyester shirt from Zara with a viscose wrap dress from sustainable brand Arket. Both items were unsalable due to a small burn mark on the shirt and a little stain on the front of the wrap dress.

Whenever I refashion items of clothing I like to use as much of the original garments as possible to reduce waste. I also think this results in a more creative and unusual final product. I included a lot of the original features from the existing garments, so for example, within the ruffles are cuffs and pieces of the shirt's collar and the waistband is also made from the shirt collar. This ensures the final product is not only a garment that has been given new life, but also a garment that tells a story of what it once was."
